DALLAS - The Dallas Stars finally broke through against Phoenix goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov.
Frustrated by Bryzgalov for more than 2 1/2 periods, the Stars got late goals from Steve Ott and Mike Modano to rally for a 2-1 victory over the Coyotes last night.
Dallas won its seventh straight to match a franchise record.
Modano got the winner on a power play with 3:12 remaining. The Stars had a five-on-three advantage when Modano notched the 523d goal of his career, extending his record for goals by a US-born player.
Modano's 16th of the season came on a one-timer from the high slot off a pass from Jere Lehtinen as the Stars roared back after trailing at the start of the final period.
"You can't get sucked into getting discouraged too bad," Modano said. "[Bryzgalov is] one of the better goalies. You can't get too cute."
Dallas has a seven-game winning streak for the fourth time in club history. The last time the Stars won seven in a row was Nov. 22-Dec. 5, 1997.
The Stars improved their Pacific Division lead to 6 points over San Jose and Anaheim.
Bryzgalov denied the first 40 shots he faced before Ott tied it at 1 at 11:45 of the third period on a shot from the left circle that glanced into the net off the goalie's right shoulder.
Ex-Star Niko Kapanen scored for the Coyotes, but Phoenix lost its fourth in a row.
